"The problem with the rat race is that even if you win, you're still a rat."  -Lily Tomlin

If you are doing work that you believe adds no value to yourself or others, it is easy to become frustrated or demotivated.

Take a moment and think about your goals and values.  Then consider how what you do in your day supports (or doesn't support) those values.

For example:
If you value good health, making the time to exercise is a good connection.
If you value kindness, making time to listen to customers and colleagues is a good fit.

Make a list of your top 5-10 values.  Think about those as you go through your day.
Seeing the big picture can make it easier to put up with the little irritations.
